Are you the Fish or the Eagle?


The fish, representing the fluidity of life, goes with the flow and embraces change. The eagle – a symbol of leadership – rises above adversity, takes control and soars to great heights.

It’s the ultimate choice: be a ruler and wear your crown proudly, or succumb to the currents and become prey to those with vision. 

As one of the iconic designs in TSHEPO’s newest T-shirt collection, this tee serves as a wearable reminder that we have the power to choose – just like Tshepo did, all those years ago. Because of the inspiring women he had in his corner and the ambition he had in his heart, the sky was always the limit.  

Growing up in a township, he could have easily gone down the wrong path. Instead he stayed off the streets and crafted his future.

After dropping out of fashion school because he couldn’t afford the tuition, he could have given up and given in to any job that came along. Instead, he took what he learnt, mastered it, and transformed it into a career.

He could have given his staff training that was ‘good enough’. Instead, he collaborated with the head tailor of the Jeans School in Amsterdam to curate a community of eagles who are now world-class tailors and seamstresses.

Fate is for the fish. You get to decide what’s written in the stars. So, what’ll it be?
